Beautiful magnolia blooms
May 28, 2013 § 3 Comments
We were pleased this week to see that our magnolia tree is blooming. Magnolias are the biggest, longest lasting blooms. They start out white, and then gradually turn a little brown around the edges as the weeks and months pass. We are fortunate to live in the South, where magnolias are very common.
As beautiful as these dinner-plate-sized blooms are, it doesn’t make sense to cut them and bring them indoors. Our magnolia flowers have no scent, and they also last much longer on the tree than in a vase. We much prefer having these outside, where we can look out a window and enjoy them for months on end.
